TECHNOTIGER - Thank you for that thought - I had already carried out that instruction - But to be on the safe side I did the whole thing again - but I still get the same message "Installation failed or was cancelled" - I was made aware of this problem when I started to get messages saying "This site may need the Adobe Flash Player activeX installed" and I was seeing blank squares with the small coloured square in the top L.H. corner whre there should have been pictures - anyway thank you - Ian

Hmm, in that case I advise you to contact Adobe Support (Home) in my link above - also in Support, you could have a look at the specialised Forums concerning Adobe products.

Good luck.

Run CCleaner click here in its default set-up. This might get rid of left-overs from your previous efforts.
